1. Family Memory Jar For Parents
Parents are perhaps the only people in the world who love us unconditionally. They are our strongest link to our past and who we are. So it is only natural to want to buy them something as special as they are. But do you really want to buy them the latest gadgets and electronics that they probably won’t use? What about a gift that really brings them happiness? The Family Memory Jar is a different direction to go in this year. It is a great keepsake that will keep bringing joy to your parents every time they open it. It comes with 180 memory tickets you can use to jot down all your favorite memories and wishes.

2. Thinking Putty For Kids
Are you a parent with a bunch of beautiful children? A beloved aunt? A cool uncle? A doting grandparent? Find yourself short of ideas for Christmas gifts for the kids? Why not get them a toy that is fun, instructional and unusual at the same time? Check out Crazy Aaron’s Thinking Putty. It comes in different colors and textures from molten lava to copper gold. Its good for all ages and keeps you involved for hours. The best word to describe this gift is Trippy. Shimmering colors shift before your eyes as you play with it. The kids will definitely think you are the coolest if you get them Thinking Putty for Christmas.
3. Me Without You Hardcover For Girlfriend/Wife
Do you want to express your love for that special woman in your life? Men tend to have trouble expressing their emotions. Especially the more complex ones like love. Many loving husbands and boyfriends find themselves unable to put their feelings for their significant others in words. I Without You has illustrated snapshots of love in everyday situations. Authors Ralph Lazar and Lisa Swerling have done a great job of putting love into a series of cute illustrations. Each page depicts a situation which would be incomplete without the other person. A truly heartwarming expression of love. A hardcover copy of Me Without You is going to last you both a lifetime.
4. The Beer Bible For Boyfriend/Husband
Ladies, men like you a lot. Men also like beer almost as much. Wouldn’t it be great if your significant other could get both at once? What if I told you a book is all you need? Bah humbug, a book? Not just any book but one that is guaranteed to catch your man’s attention. The Beer Bible is just what it says it is. It is an authoritative, comprehensive encyclopedia for beer lovers everywhere. From craft beer to stout to the finest Belgian beer, this book has it all. Jeff Alworth, a beer expert from the West Coast is the author behind this brilliant piece of work. There’s just no better Christmas gift for your husband or boyfriend this year. The Beer Bible will keep him entertained till next Christmas.
5. Instant Digital Camera For Sister
If your sister is something like mine, she probably loves taking pictures. Pictures of herself, of others, of scenery, of just about everything. Digital electronics let us store these pictures on our phones and laptops, but there are usually no hard copies. This means you could lose a lot of memories if your device’s hard drive malfunctions. It doesn’t normally happen, but then again, it happens often enough. So here’s the perfect gift for your photo-enthusiastic sister. The Polaroid Instant Digital Camera. It works just like the Polaroids of our childhood. Just point, snap and print vibrant, detailed images in seconds. It uses ZINK printing technology to print gorgeous images on 2X3 inch paper. There is no ink or toner in this camera. All you need is ZINK paper and your inner photographer. Tell your sister to do a few practice shots of the family on Christmas Day to get started.
6. Bluetooth Turntable for brother
It’s a good time to be a retro-hipster. Even better to be one with a good taste in music. Vinyl may seem impracticable, but people swear by the sound and feel of classic records. So if your brother is either a retro-freak or a music lover or both, this gift is perfect. Get him a reimagined Bluetooth turntable with wireless speakers. Urban Outfitters has a decent selection of retro tech. You can also find vinyl of modern music if your brother isn’t so much into classic rock, pop or blues.
Everything is in full swing for Christmas. The Frontier internet packages are swimming in reindeer and snow. The streets are coming alive with fairy lights and baubles. The air is alive with sounds and smells that bring back fond memories. This Christmas, think outside the box with this list. Your loved ones will appreciate the effort and thoughtfulness behind these gifts. Have a very Merry Christmas!
